ABRUZZO: Although it is one of the smallest regions of Italy, rugged Abruzzo boasts the highest peaks of the Apennine range, the Gran Sasso. In fact, most of the territory is made up of majestic mountains spilling down to the coast of the Adriatic Sea. Unsuitable for agriculture, the region’s economy depends on pastoral activity and specialty artisans (goldsmiths, wood and stone carvers, wrought-iron craftsmen) and tourism. Abruzzo is the ancestral land of many Americans who return to Italy in search of their roots. The region’s four major national parks and nature reserves are ideal for hiking, free climbing, alpine, cross-country, and downhill skiing. Our favorite medieval villages to explore include Sulmona, Scanno, Penne Atri, Tagliacozzo, Saepinum and the historic capital town of L’Aquila with its Fontana delle 99 Cannelle, a fountain built in 1272 with 99 spouts. In Sulmona you find Ceramics of Castelli, a tradition since the Middle Ages. Gastronomic specialties: A large variety of pastas come from this region. Inland you find lamb dishes and a special variety of pecorino cheeses, while the coast offers seafood delights including stuffed squid. Highly prized wines come from Montepulciano d’Abruzzo.

Wonderful hotels, inns, bed and breakfasts and agritourismo accommodations are included in our list of Abruzzo Hotels. These lodging accommodations will contribute to lasting memories of your trip to Italy.
